The earliest records of martial arts practice in Korea, known as Taekkyon, dates back to 50 B.C. during Korea’s three-kingdom era. The art grew vigorously on temple grounds with a spiritual angle that was interlaced with a flow of physical technique. As a result of heavy combat and violence between the three kingdoms, the average citizen began learning the necessary skills for self protection.
As a martial art, Taekwondo aims not only to develop power and skill for self-defense, but to develop the ability and attitude necessary to safeguard justice, act respectfully and responsibly, and embody the tenet of universal equality.
Many of our young blackbelt students work with the lower belts in their training. This helps them serve as mentors to the younger group, which has helped to instill a great deal of trust, respect, and confidence between our students. It’s a beautiful thing to watch unfold.
